Applied Behavior Analysis

What is Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)?

Applied Behavior Analysis is a science dedicated to the understanding and improvement of socially significant behavior.

ABA uses positive reinforcement in a way that can be measured in order to help bring about meaningful behavior change. ABA focuses on positive reinforcement strategies. It can help children who are having difficulty learning or acquiring new skills.


How does it work?

All Applied Behavior Analysis procedures are evidence-based, meaning there is significant research showing the method’s effectiveness.

Services are administered by staff who are trained to use ABA in order to increase socially significant behaviors. An individualized approach is used for each case. Data collection,
replacement behaviors, and caregiver education are all used to improve outcomes. A Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) oversees all cases.
